This paper studies the effects of the gender of the real estate agents on the closing price of residential, single-family homes in seven cities in east Los Angeles county from 2016 to 2017. We conduct two sets of regressions and find that contrary to previous studies, female listing agents outperform male listing agents. We also find that the gender of the buyer’s agents does not have significant effects on house prices. These results suggest that negotiation skills might not be the main key to explain the discrepancy of performance between male and female real estate agents.
